Latest Update 

18 May 2022

On the 28 January 2022, it was announced that third dose (booster shot) of a COVID-19 vaccine would be mandatory for all workers by 22 April 2022. Relevant workers who have not had their booster shot by 22 April 2022 will not be permitted to attend their workplace.

Workers who are required to get the COVID-19 vaccine are:

  • Workers who come into direct contact with people who are at risk of severe illness from COVID, including Aboriginal people and people who cannot be vaccinated due to age or a medical condition.
  • Workers who are at an increased risk of contracting COVID-19 because they work in a high-risk setting where there is a known risk of COVID-19 transmission or outbreak.
  • Workers who perform work in essential infrastructure, food or essential good security or supply, or logistics in the Territory.

Workplaces must update their register of vaccination status for all workers to include Workers booster shot details.

With the NT 2022 Season due to start on the 1 June, SLSNT has released this updated Circular regarding the requirement for Workers to have had three doses of an approved COVID-19 Vaccine in order to attend their workplace.
